In 2012, Oriental Radio's Nakata Atsuhiko and talent Fukuda Moe tied the knot. The celebrate the joyous occasion, the couple held a ceremony on January 5th of this year. They held their wedding in the beautiful province of Bali. Recently, Fukuda has been updating her fans and the public with pictures of the gorgeous event. This has left many stunned at how grande and beautiful her wedding was. In fact many said it looked like it was right out of a catalog. The wedding was coordinated by wedding planner Ms. Ariga of TGN.
Fukuda states the color scheme was based on her favorite color and the image of Bali's sun - yellow. As well as the image of the sea and sky; and her husband's favorite color - blue.
(above) The dress that Fukuda is wearing is by designer, Suzuki Takayuki. According to Fukuda the clothes that her husband is wearing was a surprise that she designed for him. Fukuda's bouquet is yellow, and that day, the color really shined.
(above) A look at the long dress and tuxedo on the day of the ceremony. The tuxedo is by Suzuki Takayuki. While her long dress was similar to the first dress but with a petticoat. The picture above shows the balloon release.
(below) The shoes that Fukuda wears is a rare gem. It was from Shoes of Prey, and was custom-made just for her.
The ribbons on the back of the shoes are made from silk, while the shoes is covered in white lace and edges are made from enamel.
In the winter, they searched for white shoes for the husband, and found it a difficult task. However, miraculously they found a pair with blue soles.
The ceremony was held at the Bali Conrad Resort. The hotel and chapel are by the coastline, making it very beautiful. The resort also served as the location for their honeymoon.
The chapel also faces the sea, it looks like it's float on water. The aisle is covered in yellow. On the aisle in English it reads "Atsushi and Moe - We Walk With Eternal Love - January 5th, 2013"
Within the chapel, the aisle was covered in plumeria flowers. According to Fukuda, she saw the flower everywhere in Bali and it gives off a scent similar to Jasmine. And has since grown to love the flower.
Wedding Eve - Welcome Ceremony
On the eve of the wedding, the couple held a welcome ceremony. It was a small gathering, with a little over 30 people. Members of both families were able to attend. The party was held on the beach which shoes off Bali's charm (apparently other countries had severe restrictions concerning the beach)
Everyone wore T-shirts that were provided for them (in the color blue). And it seemed almost like a class reunion.
The party guests were then surprised with a fireworks display.
According to Fukuda, the guests were left very satisfied.
The bridesmaid consisted of friends and family. They all wore (cute) matching blue dresses. The ushers were acquaintances of the husband and they all wore matching bowties.
At this point Fukuda recalls the wedding day and her contemplation upon life.
After the ceremony, the balloons were released. On one of them was a message from Nakata to to Fukuda's father in heaven.
After the wedding, the garden party was held. At the garden party, there was so many colorful laterns strung around.
Some of the laterns held messages that the couple liked. One even had a hit song that the couple liked and Fukuda wondered if the guests noticed.
The wedding cake was very cute (and looks delicious). And was in a style that Fukuda herself liked.
At the party, not only was the food delicious but the conversation was light and airy. Nakata's younger brother, dancer FISHBOY also performed. Nakata then joined his brother in the performance. A letter from Fujimori was also read at the party.
Then the couple had a toast to remember.
The invitations were done in the form of beach sandals. This contrasts with the mid-winter season in Japan.
When the guests arrived to their rooms, they were welcomed with special goods. Including the T-shirt worn to the welcome party.
The ceremonial flower shower cup was filed with plumeria.
On just about everything was a bear and usagi illustration, meant to represent the couple. As a matter of fact, the illustration was done by her loving husband, Nakata.
Another version of the illustration can be seen on the coconut below.
The flower wreath on Fukuda's house is from Bijyu Flora.
Fukuda ends the post on a happy note, with 'I'm happy'.

There's so little Japanese celebs where I saw their weddings. Off the top of my head: Tsubasa Masuwaka's, Komori Jun's, Yamada Yu-Oguri Shun's, Yaguchi Mari's, Erika Sawajiri's. I think this one takes the cake though, big time. I also liked how Fukuda went into detail about what happened, where she got her stuff. Also this must have cost a shit-ton so I can see why celebs usually hold off on the weddings until year or so later.
